no one realized he had a visa to enter the united states which should have set alarm bells ringing. according to this official one letter was dropped from mr. abdulmutallab's name. when an employee cross checked his name against a government data base. this happened back on november 20th. had mr. abdulmutallab's name been entered correctly, officials apparently would have seen that he was classified as a possible terrorist and then the fact that he also had a visa to enter the united states would have kicked him over into what they call a 3 b classification. a 3 b classification would have kept him from boarding the plane. one letter in his name. the fact that the failures in this case have been narrowed down to that level of detail gives you some idea of how intense the security reviews have been over the last few days. in his remarks today president obama also vowed to redouble u.s. efforts to defeat al qaeda. >> here at home we will strengthen our defenses, but we will not seccumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values that we cherish as a
